Can't afford salmon, but I've smoked other fish before. I used a little metal box smoker, and never had any problems. Two hours? Mine only take about ten minutes - then I freeze if not eaten straight away.

I made a yummy fish pate for a large party from smoked herring which was very popular.

I know a lot of people who smoke their own salmon and never got sick from it, nor have I ever got sick from eating their smoked fish. It is a traditional way to prepare the food.

Obviously one needs to know exactly what they are doing, but the same goes for home canning. It is getting so that everything is seen as unsafe and some bureaucrats even want to stick their noses into garage sales and tell sellers not to bake and sell any more baked goods lest someone else get sick. Yawn.
